Empty Gym, Empty Feeling

So how was your Thursday?

In what was easily the most bizarre day in recent basketball history - might as well say sports history - tournament after tournament shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. At least two shut down at halftime of games, the SEC and the Big East. Just look at March 12th. It’s crazy.

Duke made the determination that it would not risk the safety of its players or anyone else and decided to take a miss on the ACC and the NCAA.

Not long after, the ACC reversed course and canceled the rest of the nation’s greatest conference tournament.
